Clone of the Cinnabon

"YUMMMM.... Care, you really out did yourself."

This was the first comment out of my mom's mouth as she took a bite of these. I was suppose to make these last week but had forgot my bread machine, when we came down to stay the night I knew I had to make them as I have been waiting, and this way they can sit at my moms and they can eat them :-)

After sitting on the couch and enjoying the cinnabon, this was the next comment out of her mouth. I thought it was blog worthy. "I don't really remember sex, but I'll bet this is better!"

These are SUPER sweet, but are very good, and taste just like the cinnabons at Cinnabon. Adam put the dough in the bread maker about 4 am, he put on dough cycle, then we let it rise in there until around 9 am. This worked REALLY good, if you have a night owl in the home :-)

Clone of the Cinnabon (From: Allrecipes)

  • 1 cup warm milk (110 degrees F/45 degrees C)
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup margarine, melted
  • 4 1/2 cups bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons bread machine yeast
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 1 (3 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
Place ingredients in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select dough cycle; press Start.

After the dough has doubled in size turn it out onto a lightly floured surface, cover and let rest for 10 minutes. In a small bowl, combine brown sugar and cinnamon.

Roll dough into a 16x21 inch rectangle. Spread dough with 1/3 cup butter and sprinkle evenly with sugar/cinnamon mixture. Roll up dough and cut into 12 rolls. Place rolls in a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking pan. Cover and let rise until nearly doubled, about 30 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Bake rolls in preheated oven until golden brown, about 15 minutes. While rolls are baking, beat together cream cheese, 1/4 cup butter, confectioners' sugar, vanilla extract and salt. Flip rolls over on cookie sheet before frosting. Spread frosting on warm rolls before serving.

Theres actually directions for by hand on allrecipes....

Dissolve the yeast in the warm milk in a large bowl. Mix in the sugar, margarine, salt, and eggs. Add flour and mix well. Knead the dough into a large ball, using your hands dusted lightly with flour. Put in a bowl, cover and let rise in a warm place about 1 hour, or until doubled in size. Then pick up with rolling out the dough. Hope this helped!
